Michael Bloomberg announces he is not running for president

Bloomberg isnt running for President

Donald Trump Jr. brought a 2016 tweet from his father back to life Tuesday after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed he is not running for president. He's consulting several top advisers to former President Barack Obama, including David Plouffe, the architect of Obama's 2008 campaign, data guru Dan Wagner and Mitch Stewart, Obama's battlefield-states director.

"Should I devote the next two years to talking about my ideas and record, knowing that I might never win the Democratic nomination?"

"I know we can do better as a country", he said in a Bloomberg News editorial.

"I know we can do better as a country".

"Aw-shucks, does that mean I won't get to run against her again?" tweeted Trump.

"Many people have urged me to run", he wrote.

Shortly after Thanksgiving, Bloomberg's team - sensing they needed to be ready - ramped up efforts to hire staff and advisers, said Bloomberg's longtime adviser Kevin Sheekey.

Helicopter Crash in Kenya Kills 4 Americans, Kenyan Pilot
There was no immediate information on the cause of the crash, but the Police Spokesman said an investigation had been opened. Deputy President William Ruto's pilot, Captain Marius Magonga, has died in a helicopter crash in Turkana.

"Now that we have a destination, Mike Bloomberg will help us find the path to get there", he said.

But instead of directly challenging Mr. Trump for the presidency, Bloomberg said in his opinion piece he would focus on a campaign called "Beyond Carbon", which aims to phase out use of coal by 2030, and create a "100 percent clean energy economy". Biden has said he will decide soon whether to mount a run.

Chuck Schumer, the Democratic minority leader in the Senate, told the New York Times: "Mike Bloomberg was a great mayor and would have been a strong candidate". Elizabeth Warren have demanded that candidates swear off super PACs and self funding.

The independent-turned-democratic contender had openly considered the possibility of a run to unseat President Trump for months.

Bloomberg has drafted, with former Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope, a preliminary policy proposal for what he considers a more achievable climate change plan than the Green New Deal, the proposal promoted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., which he believes can not pass Congress. Bloomberg hopes Democrats ultimately adopt the plan with an eye toward enacting it into law after the 2020 elections.

While Bloomberg lamented the slim chances of major gun control legislation passing Congress, he touted the progress made on the issue at the state level, efforts that are likely to continue throughout the 2020 campaign.

At many stops, he blasted Trump over his immigration, environmental and economic policies.
